Paragoomba (Paper Mario)

In Paper Mario, Paragoombas appear as the third enemy, excluding Jr. Troopa. They first appear on Goomba Road while Mario is making his way back to Goomba Village. With Goompa temporarily in the party, he informs Mario of Paragoombas briefly.

This is a Paragoomba. Obviously, Paragoombas are Goombas with wings.
Max HP: 2, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 0
You can't hit 'em with the Hammer while they're airborne.
If you damage 'em, they'll fall to the ground and become ordinary Goombas.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door


Paragoomba's return in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door with a lessened role. Paragoombas can be encountered in earlier locations such as Rogueport Sewers, Petal Meadows, and Hooktail becoming less common later in the game. Their role in battle reminds the same being air enemies that Mario must jump on to attack.

Super Princess Peach

Many species of Paragoomba appear in Super Princess Peach. Paragoombas fly randomly along the screen. Along with regular Paragoombas, Red Paragoombas make a reappearance from Super Mario Bros. 3, which cling to walls instead of falling off ledges. Paragoombas are also affected by the Vibe Scepter, creating emotional variants.

Mad Red Paragoombas (M. Red P-Goomba in the glossary) are encountered in Fury Volcano, which charge at Princess Peach on sight. If they fall off a ledge, they fly back up.

Sad Paragoombas are the Sad variant, and unlike the regular Paragoombas, they have a set flying pattern, but fly faster.

When Mario or Luigi jumps over them or stands on a platform below, they turn to face them and continue their pursuit. When stomped they lose their wings and become regular Goombas, losing the ability to turn.
